The 2012 version of Team USA is currently 4-0 with wins over the Fayetteville Swampdogs, Wilmington Sharks and Morehead City Marlins of the Coastal Plain League and Catawba Stars of the Virginia Collegiate League.
The Red, White and Blue will participate in the final two games of the Prospect Classic on Monday and Tuesday before beginning the international portion of its schedule.
Adam Plutko (UCLA) will start Monday's Prospect Classic contest at the National Training Complex in Cary, N.C., and Carlos Rodon (North Carolina State) will get the nod on Tuesday at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Guided by Tennessee head coach Dave Serrano, the Collegiate National Team will travel to Havana where it will play five games against Cuba at Latin American Stadium, July 5-9.
The first four games against Cuba are tentatively scheduled to start at 8 p.m. before a 5 p.m. first pitch for the final game. The international friendship series will mark the first between the two baseball powers since 1996.
From there, the U.S. will conclude its summer tour by traveling to the Netherlands for Honkbal Week in Haarlem, July 13-22. In addition to Team USA, Cuba, Japan, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico and Chinese Taipei will also participate in the tournament.
